What to do in Lyon

Did you know that Lyon was voted “Europe’s Leading City Break Destination” last year? It’s not hard to see why. Lyon is perfect for a little getaway – there’s lots going on, but not to the point that it’s overwhelming. You can make a weekend out of it, or stay awhile, if you’re not in a hurry. The city has evolved so much in the last few years, with loads of hip cafés and new restaurants setting up shop. It’s a city close to my heart, and if you ask me, it’s ze place to be in France. (I should know – I stayed for three years.)

Recently, a lot of people have been asking me for advice for their trip to Lyon. Well, you’re in luck – I wrote a guide with all the essential things to do in Lyon.

It’s a guide made for friends – all the places I would take someone visiting me in Lyon. It’s a mix of my favorite local activities and famous must-sees. I’ve also included some handy information on where to stay and how to get around.

  1. I always look forward to reading your post. France is like a second home to me. I’ve been to Paris and Montepelier. I have friends there and all over Europe. I will consider going to Lyon on my next trip. Merci!!

  2. I love it when you post Lyon related things because it makes people remember that there’s so much France has to offer! Making me miss the beautiful Saône and Rhône and everything in between ❤
